The simplest way to write a makefile is to copy
samples/minimal/makefile.unx from the wxWidgets distribution and
adapt it to your needs. Notice that you should not use
Makefile file from the same directory as it only works for the
samples because it assumes that the program being built is inside wxWidgets
The makefile.unx files use wx-config instead and are more
flexible. The minimal makefile has comments inside it explaining how to adapt
it for your program.
If you get an error from configure, please look in the generated
config.log file and try to find the test which failed (it might be not
at the very end of the file) there, usually it will contain enough information
to help you solve the problem. If this is not the case and you post a question
about it to a mailing list, please be sure to include the
relevant parts of this file as well as configure output in your message.
